HC Deb 23 February 1972 vol 831 cc331-2W
Mr. Hooson

asked the Secretary of State for Wales when his Roads Division intends to make adequate provision for pedestrian access beneath the Machynlleth Railway Bridge, following the closure of the archway adjoining the trunk road.

Mr. Peter Thomas

As the hon. and learned Member knows, I offered in June, 1971, to improve the footpath on the east side of the bridge but at the time this proposal was not acceptable to the Machynlleth U.D.C. It has now asked that the improvement be carried out and I am considering with the Montgomeryshire County Council and British Rail how this can best be undertaken.
